, but it is controlled, so it does not produce an explosion. it just generates heat in a controlled way instead. use that heat to essentially boil water. actually, you literally use it to boil water. boiling water makes steam, steam spins a turbine, and that makes electricity. that's the basic idea behind the 40-year-old reactors in japan in so much trouble now. when the reactor is on, in effect, the uranium pellets inside the big 12 foot long fuel rods are involved in a nuclear chain reaction generating heat. when they shut off the reactor in the normal course of events or because of something like an earthquake, they stop that nuclear reaction. now, in order to stop the nuclear reaction to do that, they move a bunch of control rods in among the fuel rods. the control rods stop the nuclear reaction from happening in an orderly way. i don't know if you ever had the chance to develop a photo in a dark room before everything went digital. you know how you put the photo, or may have seen it in a movie, somebody working with an actual -- with actual film and developing chemicals in an actual dark room.

on that later in the hour. now libya, though. the top commander of the u.s. military operation in libya says nato has agreed in principle to not only take over the no-fly zone, but also the broader mission of protecting civilians. he said it's all going to happen very soon. here's what general carter hamm said today on "the situation room." >> we expect that nato will take over the no-fly zone this weekend, and then the next piece, the third and final piece, is the mission to protect civilians. nato, it's my understanding that nato has agreed to that in principle and will this command decide on the procedures and timing of accepting that mission. but i think that will probably occur in the very near future. >> ham also said that removing moammar gadhafi from power by military means is not the aim of the mission and the coalition isn't arming the opposition. but the coalition strikes on gadhafi's mechanism of power continue. authorities say coalition fighter planes took out seven libyan tanks in 24 hours. in fact, we got this video from the british ministry of defense showing british aircraft
